Rickie Lynn Harris

Probation Case Manager

"Before I met Aminta, I was on a career path to nowhere. Doing meaningless jobs that made me not able to show my true self. I was soul-searching, and I am so happy GOD put her in my path.

During working with Aminta, I gained so much support and knowledge about what it really is, that I would like to do in life and that is helping others. She has encouraged, motivated and inspired me to want more out of life and that if I didn't see a change then I should create it.

After working with Aminta, I have gained self-esteem, unconditional love, inspiration, and guidance. Aminta has shown me how to always practice self-care and for me to truly know my own strengths as a woman. That is what I still value."

J. Walker


"I have been working with Coach Lani for several years now. Our connection started very casually as we were coworkers. I was going through a lot in my life with just having a baby and leaving a toxic and abusive relationship. We would talk often and she helped me work through that phase. Little did I know that the healing phase was more intense and that’s when Coach Lani became my official life coach!

Her coaching sessions and seminars are truly life changing! Even when I felt I had things together, after a seminar, I learned more about myself and healed a part of me that I didn’t know needed healing!

Today I am living my best healed life! My mindset, outlook, and energy towards life is so positive. If you are going through any phase of your life whether it is professional, relationship, personal, a new season of life, anything no matter how big or how small, coach Lani has the skills and tools to guide you through!

I am forever grateful to Coach Lani."

Dr. Ohene-Marfo

Workshop Attendee

"I enjoyed the workshop with Coach Lani. We dissected different parts of self-awareness & our purpose. I love that the group was open to sharing their experiences & it was a safe environment.

The canvas painting was therapeutic. I was able to shift my mind & think about how my upbringing plays a role in defining who I am.

I recommend Coaching to people interested in defining their purpose & want tools on becoming more Self-aware."

Jametra Oates

Student, Peer Support Specialist and Mentee

"Before working with Coach Aminta, I felt lost and unsure of my path in life pertaining to what I needed in making my dreams come true. What I experienced during working with you was becoming whole and being on track to see brighter days.

After working with you, I feel encouraged, inspired, supported, and genuinely loved while being educated to leave my mark on the world."

Vernice Cooper

Award winning Professional Speaker, Licenced Clinician, Best Selling Author

"Prior to working with Coach Paula I was experiencing a lot of fear of success.

While working with her I came to realize the origins of the fear, guilt of leaving others behind, and the significance of being a trailblazer.

Today, I’m soaring to new heights thanks to clarity and mindset shift I achieved during our time together."

Marc Jackson

Transformational Executive Life Coach

"Before I began working with Paula, I was doing my best to move forward with only my perspective and wisdom.

Every session with Paula is challenging for my faith, self-beliefs, and vision for my future.

I come away from my sessions with her knowing what I’m capable of,
what it’s going to take, and what my next move needs to be!"
